Description: Astros LHP Brett Oberholtzer took a tough-luck loss Sunday at Texas.
Insight: He gave up five hits and one earned run, didn't walk anyone and struck out seven in seven innings, but Houston didn't have a baserunner reach second base and lost 1-0. Oberholtzer had a 2.24 ERA and a 1.06 WHIP in 64 1/3 innings after joining the rotation last season and is 0-3 with a 3.50 ERA and a 0.94 WHIP in 2014.

Description: Astros rookie Brett Oberholtzer lost Saturday's game to Oakland despite allowing just one earned run over six innings.
Insight: Oberholtzer was coming off his first career shutout his last time out. The 24-year-old former eighth-round pick has a stellar 2.65 ERA in 54 1/3 innings this season but with a 4.45 ERA over 170 innings with Triple-A Oklahoma City the last two years, his major league success is unlikely to last.
